Sustainable development

Sustainable Development

In this section, you will learn about the many efforts the Casino de Mont-Tremblant has made to maximize its contribution to the community. The Casino’s various initiatives relate to the three dimensions of sustainable development:

  • social fairness
  • conservation
  • economic performance.

Partnership with Moisson organizations

In October 2016, the SCQ (Société des casinos du Québec) organized a food drive and volunteer day in its establishments. The goal was to support a cause it has taken to heart for many years: food security.

Our employees helped collect more than 11,000 kg of foodstuffs, which were then distributed to the partner Moisson organizations: Moisson Montréal, Moisson Outaouais, Moisson Laurentides, and the Service alimentaire et d’aide budgétaire de Charlevoix-Est, associated with Moisson Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean.

More than 300 employees from the casinos, Espacejeux.com, SCQ and Loto-Québec also joined forces for a volunteer day on October 20, taking part in various tasks, such as collecting foodstuffs at grocery stores and sorting them in a warehouse, or preparing meals in support of the Moisson organizations’ activities.

Everyone’s efforts helped make the October initiatives a resounding success and make the partnership between SCQ and the Moisson organizations stronger than ever.

Over the past few years, the casinos and Moisson organizations have been working together in support of food security. The partnership aims to offer employees opportunities to positively contribute to their local community by taking part in volunteer or community commitment operations.

A generous Holiday donation

The Holiday season is made for sharing and generosity, and Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees certainly do their part in that regard. Following activities organized over the previous weeks, the Casino made a cash donation to Moisson Laurentides. With the donation, 500 kilos of peanut butter were purchased and given to very appreciative families in need.

Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees make going back to school easier

For the sixth consecutive year, Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees provided support for the community by filling 25 backpacks with school supplies for primary school kids. The bags were delivered to Parents Uniques des Laurentides, an organization in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts dedicated to helping single-parent families.

This activity was organized as part of Loto-Québec’s corporate volunteer program. The program provides employees with opportunities to contribute in a positive way by taking part in volunteer activities or becoming involved in the community.

An Employee Volunteer Day to Restock Food Bank Shelves

Par pur plaisir… de donner!

More than 150 Casino du Lac-Leamy and Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees got together last October to participate in the Société des casinos du Québec’s (SCQ) annual volunteer day. This activity enabled Moisson Outaouais and Moisson Laurentides to restock their shelves with non-perishable food items.

A total of 10,000 kg of non-perishable foods and $4,089 were collected in 12 grocery stores in both regions. What’s more, the Casino du Lac-Leamy hosted the biggest single-day food drive in Moisson Outaouais’s history!

This volunteer day is one of the activities organized by the 4 casinos 4 Moisson partnership and highlights the SCQ’s social commitment to a cause that affects many families: the fight against food insecurity. The activity is deployed as part of Loto-Québec’s corporate volunteerism program to provide employees with opportunities to make a positive contribution by taking part in volunteer activities or getting involved in the community.

Volunteering at sports events

Mont-Tremblant is an acknowledged host of all kinds of sports events, such as the August, Mont-Tremblant Half-Marathon and Ironman games. Groups of Casino de Mont-Tremblant volunteers help out at the major events either individually or as families by providing refreshments and information to participants, etc.

These kinds of activities make a contribution to the region’s vitality by enabling links to grow within the community and by providing support for energizing events.                

An efficient composting program

The Casino de Mont-Tremblant has put in place a composting program to divert some two metric tons of organic matter from landfill sites.

Composted matter, essentially from the Altitude Restaurant, employee cafeteria and banquet hall kitchens, is transformed into humus, which is a natural support medium for plant growth that is made of earth enriched by decomposed matter.                

Actions integrated in an overall approach to sustainable development

Throughout Loto-Québec and its subsidiaries, sustainable development is supported by the responsible management of games of chance, taking into account economic, social and environmental aspects in order to maximize our contribution to the community.

Our commitment leads us to analyze the consequences of our activities in order to, in as much as possible, amplify their positive effects and mitigate negative consequences.
